Today, we have a eye-health related question to answer for you all.
Q: I woke up and had a stye appear under my right eye, which was preempted by some puffiness and bruising. Can you explain why this may happen?
A: A stye appears due to inflammation of the oil glands in your eyelid. Sometimes, it can be accompanied by puffiness and some darkness or bruising. If this occurs, you should make an appointment with your ophthalmologist, Dr. Wise, who will then prescribe the correct medication for you.
